Fridge Question

I am thinking of an extended stay next summer in an area with higher than normal ambient temps. Likely 3.5 months of 110*F +/- daily temps, with lows in the low 90s, high 80s. Due to how I would have to park my rig to access power, sewer, and water the condensing coils, and access panel of my fridge would be in direct sun light for 4+ hours a day. Also, there is a more than adequate wind break where I would park that hinders any breeze from getting to my rig. Here's my question; Will this type of environment shorten the life span of my fridge? I already have installed a helper fan to increase air movement across the condenser coils since I spend so much time in the desert southwest as it is. Fridge is working quite well right now. Just curios.
